The Jezabels’ Hayley Mary Lives a Nomadic Lifestyle, and It’s A Real ‘Pleasure Drive’

“I don’t really have a home, and in these last couple of years having time off, I kind of got addicted to moving. I’d only been to places for like three or four months and then I’d have to go again. I actually think it’s a really good way of living, because you don’t get stuck in ruts too much, like behavioral or relationships ruts. I encourage it for anyone who’s considering a nomadic lifestyle. I absolutely love it.”

– Hayley Mary (vocalist)

Oh, and she also got to drive through California’s Death Valley in a Ford Convertible Mustang, a trip that inspired her personal favourite ‘Pleasure Drive’. Give it a spin below:
